 NEET PG Counselling 2021 verdict on EWS and OBC quota has been given by Supreme Court. The Apex Court has allowed counselling session to begin for both UG and PG courses. The apex court has upheld the 27 percent OBC quota.

The matter was heard by a special bench led by Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice AS Bopanna.

Earlier, the Apex Court has agreed to hear the plea following centre’s urgent request to hear the matter in view of the protests by resident doctors against delay in the counselling round for NEET PG. 

An urgent listing was sought by Solicitor General of India Tushar Mehta following which the approval was given by the Chief Justice of India N V Ramana.

NEET PG Counselling was delayed after a plea was filed in the apex court against the Centre’s decision to revisit the criteria for the determination of the EWS quota in the All India Quota. Resident doctors of various hospitals under the banner of the Federation of Resident Doctors' Association (FORDA) in Delhi and other parts of the country protested over a delay in the counselling session.
